Tweet Leaves Happy Birthday

Hi all! I cannot believe that I made a card yesterday.  Well it took me all day as I could not get comfortable at my stamping table.  Could not get my foot elevated high enough and sitting there just a few moments and I could feel it start to swell.  So it took me about three times going into my craft room to get it done,  but finally I did.  I am not certain I am thrilled with my final product, but I do like the overall look. 
I was inspired by the sketch this week from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge blog and knew I would be using my Tweet Leaves stamp for this card.  I used my markers to color the image on the stamp and then stamped the image on whisper white.  I then used the die, autumn accents, to cut it out along with some of the other colors.  I also spritzed the image with the Silver Foil Smooch Spritz which gave it a little sparkle, but you can't see that very well in the picture.
Here is a side view of the card!
